Custom grape smasher

Its fun when people know that you turn wood.  Its great when people ask you if its possible to make something to support their hobby.  My friend who does organic farming also makes his own wine!  He was trying to crush his grapes yesterday and wondered if I could make anything that would help make it easier.  This is my prototype grape smasher.  I chose a dried and cracked chunk of oak to start with to get a better idea of weight.  Just add a 1″ dowl for a handle and hopefully it will work great!  It’s only a prototype it looks like it should work!
